Viewership up a lot the past week or more, but earnings going down? Ideas about why?
My hubs are getting more traffic daily than they used to, yet the past several days my earnings are well below my usual average. I am wondering why that may be? I do not have links on questionable sites etc. and most traffic is google, pinterest, other search engines etc.
I have the exact same problem. My earnings are down by about 80% of what they were previously with the same amount of traffic. Hope someone knows what's going on!
This has been happening to me also. I am earning less and less money on the same number of views, sometimes more views and less earnings.
They fixed mine now! Yay! That looks better!
How long did it take for your earnings to go back to normal?? Mine just went down making me worried...
I was wondering about this, as I too have had increased visitors, be decreased CPM. Which makes my earnings go down, when I am expecting them to go up! A bit disappointing!
My only idea would be to try to write using keywords that are higher paying, but I'm not sure that would make much of a difference if everyone is experiencing decreased CPM.
It seems you are the exact opposite of a lot of us. Everything has been down for around 3 weeks. I've seen several talking about this.
My views have gone up about 20-25% but the earnings are staying the same.
My CPM's dropped recently (the hubpages ad program one) and I have no clue why, since it's been steady for quite a while.
Maybe it's just something that's happening to a number of people?
Yesterday evening it appears some corrections were made and things are back closer to normal again. Hopefully it was just another little hiccup that is being ironed out. Sorry to hear so many are having traffic issues - that wasn't what happened with me so I was perplexed by the earnings drop, but it appears to be working itself out now.
Hmm.. todays earnings have have the same problem again. What's going on?
I haven't seen it myself again so I really don't know - perhaps it's just pending earnings and they'll go back up. Sometimes the stats get backed up a day or two. I'll keep my eyes peeled too good luck.
I've been on HP just over 6 months and have published 64 hubs, so I don't have a huge amount of data to spot trends, but the sleuth in me says it may be google tinkering with its algorithm.

My hubpages earnings report has been pending for the past 3 days and I am not able to see how much I earned for those days. What could be the problem?

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

I was wondering if there are many writers earning more than $100 a week? Consistently.Some people just write for their own pleasure, but others write in order to earn money. There are different ways to get your work out there, some pay whilst others do not.What are your experiences with being paid...

My Adsense earnings this month from HubPages was only 40% of what I normally earn with HubPages and for the first time in several months I did not make a payout in Amazon this month. However, the saving grace was some of my blogs which earned double of what they normally were earning and the...

I just wrote a Hub last week entitled "Adam Lambert Sexed for Success". It did quite well, in fact it receive over 1700 views in less than a week. (that's good for me, anyway). My overall ranking on hubpages as of this morning was 96. The article was ranked anywhere from 87 - 93 and the...
